An unmissable yachting destination, the Balearics Islands are known for their startling beauty and distinctive mix of local tradition, welcoming culture and rich history. Consisting of several islands, each with its own unique personality, a Balearic yacht charter offers stunning landscapes, warm waters and metropolitan living at its finest. From the white-sand, glamorous party destination of Ibiza to the charming and quaint island of Formentera and the wondrous limestone cliffs and sheltered coves of Mallorca, there is no better way to explore this island group than via a yacht charter.
Not to miss
It is hard to resist tasting the Mediterranean cuisine on the Balearics! Do not miss the opportunity to appreciate the local delicacies of fish or meat, mixed with fresh fruits and berries. Mouth-watering hot dishes are popular around here, for example, caldera (lobster soup), paella (vegetable mixture with rice, prepared with a chosen filling: meat, fish or seafood), sobassada (black pork sausage).
Ibiza is a famous island in the Balearic archipelago and a trendy youth resort known for its nightlife. The island’s nightclubs are rightfully considered the best not only in Europe, but also in the world. In addition, the island is not too small and diverse enough: there are golden sandy beaches and excellent opportunities for active sports.
Mallorca is the largest island in the Balearic archipelago and is home to the capital of the region, Palma de Mallorca. The island lives exclusively on tourism – there is a wide network of modern hotels, beautiful beaches surrounded by picturesque surroundings and a fertile Mediterranean climate that makes Mallorca a year-round resort.
Formentera is the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands. It is located just 6 km from Ibiza, yet is very quiet and peaceful. San Frances de Formentera (aka San Francisco Javier) is the largest city, and the rest of the island is almost untouched by civilization.
